Velopa and V-Locker join forces

Spreitenbach AG/Dübendorf ZH – Velopa and V-Locker are entering into a cooperation. The aim is to develop complete solutions for bicycle parking systems, urban micromobility and mobility hubs.

Velopa AG from Spreitenbach and the Dübendorf start-up V-Locker AG are entering into a strategic partnership, according to a press release. The two companies offer bicycle parking systems, cycle path infrastructure and mobility hubs to promote resource-conserving micromobility, the report continues. This also includes the sustainable development of the "first and last mile" of public transport.

Through this cooperation, the two providers are supplementing their portfolio of situation-specific solutions for bicycle parking systems and sustainable mobility services. "With this partnership, we are creating an important prerequisite for further advancing the sustainable transportation transition. Thanks to the mutual complementary expansion of our offerings, we are able to plan the optimal bike park solution for every situation and thus promote urban micromobility," said Pascale Haslauer, CEO of Velopa AG.

With around 50 employees, Velopa is a Swiss-wide provider of products and solutions in the field of bicycle infrastructure. These include digitalized and mechanical bike parking systems, guidance systems for bike stations as well as cycle path dividers and access control systems. V-Locker is a manufacturer and operator of automated modular bicycle parking towers, including a digital platform that simplifies the use and operation of the parking systems.

"The cooperation with Velopa is the next logical step for V-Locker in an increasingly networked and therefore more complex world of mobility," says Jens Kirchhoff, CEO and co-founder of V-Locker AG. Providers of innovative and high-quality mobility infrastructure must also create synergies in order to provide mobile people with environmentally friendly and healthy mobility, the CEO continued. ce/gba
